Kube is no longer the “the new kid on the block.” Quite the contrary – it has become the dominant form of application infrastructure. Yet some say it is still too hard, hence the many managed Kube services and similar options. Will we see Kube become more operationalized? What about the ecosystem around it? Service mesh? What does the near-term future hold for that? What about cloud native’s effect on the SDLM? The CI/CD world has been turned inside out by cloud native/Kube, what can we expect to see there? DataOps? GitOps? Cloud Native Sec? So many questions, so little time!
